Bring your appetite. Each dish is better than the next. We eat Indian cuisine in the states, and last night we had a very good meal in Mumbai, but this restaurant beats them all. You can tell that each dish is prepared by a chef as a labor of love. If you are visiting the Taj Mahal or anywhere in... More

The restaurant is set in the Oberoi hotel, which is magical. The service is attentive. The food is good, but it is spicy, so be prepared if your not used to it.

I had two phantastic dinners at Esphahan during my 2 day stay at the Oberoi Amarvilas. First night I had the non-veg Thali - simply wonderful - and today I had a Kebab platter and a phantastic fish curry. Service, ambience, and food are excellent. Highly recommandable.

Oberoi in itself is epitome of luxury and the Indian speciality restaurant of Amarvilas adds more value into the same. The food was amazing and service was flawless. The attentiveness and eagerness of the service staff helped is making our experience a memorable one. The homemade ice creams were really fabulous.

The best part of this restaurant was the presence of Continental dishes on the menu. After a steady diet of Indian food, it was nice to divert to other choices and this place allowed my wife to do so while I had more Indian fare. Also a nice venue for breakfast when staying to the Oberoi.

Thank Peter B
